Healthcare Equipment Project
Many District 22B Lions Clubs provide a public service by loaning used Healthcare and Disability Equipment to individuals within their communities.  They handle a variety of equipment including:  Hospital Beds, Wheelchairs, Transport Chairs, Walkers, Rollators, Commodes, Power Lift Recliners, Power Wheelchairs, Crutches, Canes, Feeding Tables and numerous other items.  All borrowing is subject to and limited by equipment availability.
If you are looking for equipment, you should contact your Local Lions Club, to find out if they have the equipment that you need.  If the local club doesn't have what you are looking for, you can ask them to contact other nearby Lions Clubs to try to find the item(s) for you. 
Participating Lions Clubs try to avoid intruding into the areas served by neighboring Clubs, and therefore frequently limit their Healthcare Equipment service to a radius around their local communities; however, many willingly share their inventory with neighboring Lions Clubs, when those Clubs also provide the Healthcare Equipment service. 
Participating Lions Club Information
The following table shows the District 22B Lions Clubs that participate in the Healthcare Equipment Project and provides contact information for use by both Lions and members of our communities.
All Lions are volunteers and many work the Healthcare Equipment project into or around their normal jobs and responsibilities; therefore, we emphasize that you can Email us at anytime, but ask that you please limit your phone calls to the Contact Times shown below.
